Everyone likes to keep their phones handy at all times. Whether it’s in your pocket, purse, cup holder in your car or on your desk. Communication is key for all Certified Legal Nurse Consultants, their legal nurse consulting subcontractors and attorney-clients.
I was complaining to a friend about the life of my iPhone® battery. My friend, who’s not normally on the cutting edge of tech, told me that I had too many background apps running and that I should shut them all down. This (finger waving in the air) he claimed was adversely affecting my battery life.
Something I’ve always loved (and hated) about Mac® users is their innocence. I can’t tell you how many Certified Legal Nurse Consultant Mac users have told me that they love their Macs because they don’t have to worry about spyware, viruses, ransomware – all the things that wake me up screaming in the middle of the night because I’m a Windows® user.
Most of my loyal Certified Legal Nurse Consultant readers know I can be a bit old school when it comes to new things. I’ve loved my BlueAnt® earpiece and even stocked up on them when they were discontinued.
Summer is well upon us and all Certified Legal Nurse Consultants will be heading into the great outdoors to enjoy everything from barbequing, water skiing, Little League games, outdoor patio happy hours, splashing about in the pool and just sitting around working on world-class tans.
I love my laptop but it’s got a grand total of four USB ports. That’s not a whole lot of ports in a storm in my computing world. My computer’s dock has spaces for my keyboard, mouse and two more, but I need some additional USB ports to get through my day.
More and more I’ve been abandoning my car’s GPS-based navigation system and using my iPhone and Google Maps. I love Google Maps because it checks your route against traffic and usually (but not always) takes me the fastest way to where I’m going.
I love using keyboard shortcuts in Microsoft® Word. My only problem is that there are too many of them to keep track of. Savvy Certified Legal Nurse Consultants know that the ones I give out in my Tech Tips are the most useful.
Vickie and I are lucky. At the office we have Internet connection speeds that would make the Pentagon jealous. Email is delivered before we send it and web pages miraculously appear at the click of a mouse. At home though, things are a little different. Our Internet connectivity is more “real world” and we actually have to wait almost a second or two for a document to download. It’s not disturbing but we do notice a difference.
According to a recent news release by Twitter, they experienced a bug that stored user passwords in plain text format. Most companies that store passwords do so in an encrypted manner that restrains Internet miscreants from locating and misusing them. Normally Twitter does so too, but not this time.
